Wow didn’t realise it was that long since I last posted, best get me finger out! Well pretty soon we are launching Essex House in Chingford (Essex!) so more about that later. But, the good news right now is IBZ Nights and Let There Be House is back…See the flyer below for details and we will see you in Cardiff this Xmas!! Happy Holidays everyone!
Had to show off my amazing girlfriend Danielle after she appeared in The Sun recently. I thought I was good in my day but Dan certainly got the skills. She´s even played in the Linekers V Ocean Beach 5 a sides and held her own lately here in Ibiza. Go on Dan!!
I’m guessing by now you will all have seen Ive released a great house track with my music partner Damon Hess called Good Impression! It´s smashing the clubs and we will be playing at IBZnights this winter when we tour the UK again. If you are coming to Ibiza this summer, love your music and fancy a VIP day at Ocean, take a look at the flyer below!
Ok I apologise in advance as the quality wasn’t too good on the day with the wind and all that, but seeing as Ibiza is coming around I thought Id post the interview with TOWIE star Mario Falcone on my site here for you all to see what I did last year. I´m hoping to do some more celeb interviews over this summer so will see how we go! Hope you like it! Ill be saving this on my Ocean Beach page soon!
Proud to announce on my website the forthcoming EP Good Impression that I have been working on with my team and the great Damon Hess

IbizaRush caught up with co-owner Wayne Lineker to ask him a few questions……
Thanks Wayne for joining us for this interview, we’ll start off with
IR: What made you and your business partner Tony Truman decide to open a beach club? Especially when critics claimed that such an idea would not work in San Antonio.
WL: “TONY CALLED ME VERY EXCITED ONE DAY AS A PLOT OF LAND HAD BECOME AVAILABLE THAT HE HAS BEEN AFTER FOR YEARS. IT WAS THE OBVIOUS CONCEPT TO PUT THERE. YES MANY PEOPLE SAID IT WOULD NEVER WORK IN SAN ANTONIO BUT WE WERE EXTREMELY CONFIDENT WITH OUR IDEAS AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE INDUSTRY WE COULD MAKE IT WORK. THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE EATING HUMBLE PIE AS WE ARE NOW THE MOST POPULAR VENUE IN IBIZA AS FAR AS THE BRITS ARE CONCERNED”
IR: The craziest day/night you have experienced since opening Ocean Beach?
WL: “THE VERY FIRST DAY WE OPENED BACK IN 2012, IT HIT ME THEN WHAT A MONSTER THIS IS. THE PLACE WAS BUZZING LIKE I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. THE REST IS HISTORY. THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY DAYS SINCE THEN THAT HAVE BEEN SPECIAL. ONE IN PARTICULAR WAS HED KANDI MONDAY JUNE 9th LAST SEASON WHICH WAS MY FIRST DAY WITH MY NOW GIRLFRIEND DANIELLE SANDHU. IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT”
IR: Almost in the style of Total Wipeout, (dubbed by the Daily Mail) What gave you the idea to create the 7,000sq ft ocean mania? Which opens May 1st.
WL: “SOMEONE APPROACHED US WITH THE IDEA OF THE INFLATABLE WATER PARK AND MY PARTNER TONY TRUMAN THEN DID LOTS OF RESEARCH ETC AND IT JUST SEEMED A GOOD FUN THING TO DO. WE OPENED LATE LAST SUMMER AND WAS AN IMMEDIATE SUCCESS”
IR: Was Ocean Beach hotel the obvious next step?
WL: “ITS GREAT TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE HOTEL AND GREAT FOR OCEAN BEACH. ADDS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF STIGMA TOO TO THE BUSINESS”
IR: If we were to listen to Wayne Lineker’s Ipod, what sort of tunes would we expect to hear?
IR: Your favourite hang outs on the white isle?
WL: “OCEAN BEACH AND A BAR CALLED LINEKERS! THOSE ASIDE I LOVE PACHA, SPACE AND USHUAIA, AND OF COURSE THE AMAZING LIO. I ALSO LOVE GOING TO PLASTIK AS MY CLOSE FRIENDS OWN IT AND THE MUSIC IS THE BEST IN THERE. I LOVE TO GO TO MAMBOS TOO FOR SUNSET”
IR: What makes Ibiza so magic for you?
WL: “THE VIBE THE MUSIC AND THE PEOPLE. THE BEACHES ARE SO AMAZING TOO IF KNOW THE ISLAND”
IR: What do you expect in the 2015 season compared to last year?
WL: “WE’RE EXPECTING YET ANOTHER RECORD BREAKING YEAR. I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT. THE BUZZ AROUND IBIZA 2015 IS CRAZY”

Wow, what a weekend that was! Started out last Friday night with a trip to Leicester for my good friends Andy Mackows wedding to the lovely Davina, all coinciding nicely with me Dad´s birthday! Touch! Met up with Bacardi Bazza in the Grand Hotel where the wedding was too, what a place! Andy and Davina smashed it big time with that one, the entertainment they laid on was second to none, I was crying at the hypnotist! Congratulations guys. Great to see Nicos, Hammer, Dan etc and a few of the Linekers Marbella crew in attendance. Popped round to the Grapevine Bar in Belvoir Street too for a cheeky couple or three. Got sh*t on by the in house pigeons as well lol, hahahaha. In the morning at the unearthly hour of 7-00am I was off to East Midlands airport to fly to my old stomping ground in Tenerife. Got there just in time as they had a power cut, would have been disaster if I couldn’t get any brekkie. My original baby (Linekers Tenerife) has been taken over by UNM (Under New Management, Ross, Andy and George!) and I was off to support the boys and wish them well. It got so good I didn’t wanna come back this week but needs must and all that! Trying to sort all me photos out and hopefully I´ll have a gallery up on here pretty soon and some stories about the trip! Photos of the Tenerife opening night can be found on their facebook page for now though, click here Linekers Tenerife
Big up to the main man, Happy Birthday to Big Bad Bacardi Barry! The man responsible for everything! Haha, happy birthday Dad.. a grand 76 today (I think lol) Off to see him later in the home town of Leicester where it all began and then popping to my friends wedding, might see a few people tonight, say hi if your passing. So excited for Tenerife tomorrow and dont forget Puerto Banus Linekers opens its doors tonight too for the summer season, get down and get with it! Have a great weekend people xx Wayne
